The last three weeks I have mostly been decorating... it would be safe to assume that I have done lots and lots and nearly done the whole house. Well, that assumption would be wrong!

Having never actually decorated a full room before I was very naive to think that a splash of paint here and a bit of gloss there and bobs your uncle you have a lovely decorated room. In reality It has taken me a whole week (of evenings after work) to do just the office. However if i do say so my self it looks wonderful! I am a hopeless perfecionist so it had to be just right.

I have also been planning a nine day trip to France for me and Martin. We leave on Friday after work and drive down to Dover then sail to Calais on Saturday morning. We're spending two days in Paris here in this lovely hotel, I can't wait. There is so much that i want to do and see in Paris, we definatley won't be able to fit it all in but i do hope that we make it to the Louvre as i have always wanted to go. I'd also like to take a boat trip down the Seine - thats the hopeless romantic in me!

After leaving Paris we are driving 6 hours down country a bit further than Cognac. We're spending 5 days in that area and then driving back to Calais on saturday and sailing back to Dover on Sunday just in time to be back at work on Monday morning!

Still got loads to do and a bit daunted as neither me nor Martin have ever driven on the 'wrong' side of the road before (well not intentionally) but it should be a fun adventire.

Watch out for 'France' themed pictures soon!

sunsets, fast cars and fairs!

Well hasn't it been a long time.

What with finding my feet in my new job, holidays, lots and lots of fairs and gereral life type things i have not had any time to visit blog land. I hope that now i will have a little more time, although i have big ideas about re-decorating the whole of the house so we will see how i go!

Last weekend me an Alex were intrepid adventurers at the Cumbira Steam Gathering, You can read about it here! It was a sunny, rainy, funny and tireing weekend, quite the combination!

I have just spent a lovely weekend with my Mummy and Daddy and did lots of yummy cooking just like when i was a little girl. I love going 'home', it was always just me and mu and dad (i am an only child) so sometimes its nice to just be the three of us again!

So since i last blogged i have:

Been on an amazing holiday to Florida with Martin and mum and dad... ...where we found some amazing waterways...

...and saw breathtaking sunsets.

I did a craft fair (with the lovely Alex) 2 days after landing back from Florida with extreem jet lag!

And i marveled at the awsome power of the Ariel Atom - with Martin behind the wheel! This was part of his 21st Birthday pressie from him mum, he got to drive 7 super cars including an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and an Audi A8 - i watched from behind my fingers!

Oh and i graduated! 3 years finally finished so i now have a BA Hons degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications! It was a lovely day as both me and Martin graduated in the same ceremony. We had both our families there and made a fab day of it!

So thats about it, i am on a major re-decorating mission so will be posting various before and after piccies very soon - please just humour me!

I hope you are all well and i will be popping by your blogs in just a minute!
